Northwest Center for Sport


At Central Washington University's Northwest Center for Sport, we are commited to advancing knowledge and experiential opportunies for our students to transform the sport industry for the better. Here at the NWCS, we are committed to serve as a conduit for our students to develop, grow and start to build their legacy.

Who We Are

In an effort to connect our students with the sport industry, we hosted guest speakers on-campus and virtually last academic year from all facets of the sport industry:

  •  Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Sounders, Yakima Pippins, Root Sports, the WIAA and our own CWU Athletics among others. 

We have hosted conferences in years past and plan to host our Annual CWU NWCS Sport Management Conference this upcoming Spring 2021 featuring current leaders from the sport industry. We as a Center also hold a student trip each year in which we took a group of students to the Portland Trail Blazers Career Fair and toured venues such as the Nike Campus, Moda Center and the Hillsboro Hops Ron Tonkin Field. 

At the NWCS, there are opportunities for those interested in serving as a member of our undergraduate Sport Management Association and leadership opportunities in serving as a graduate student Northwest Center for Sport Ambassador.
